Beginning 2019, authors from all Projekt DEAL institutions may publish primary research and review articles open access in Wiley journals, and retain copyright of their works, at no charge to the author. Instead, fees related to open access publication in Wiley journals will be paid centrally via your institution. This agreement is part of a nationally coordinated strategy to enable a large scale transition of today’s scholarly journals to open access. To publish open access without having to pay Article Publication Charges (APCs), the following criteria must be met:
|Articles are made freely available|
|Meet open access mandates automatically|
|Under a Creative Commons license|
|To PMC for appropriate articles|
Eligible authors may publish open access in one of two ways:
|Publish in any of Wiley's fully gold Open Access journals (manuscript accepted on or after 22 Jan 2019) (View journal list) and follow the instructions in the PDF below.||Publish in any of Wiley’s hybrid journals that offer OnlineOpen (manuscript accepted on or after 1 July 2019) (View journal list) and follow the instructions in the PDF below.|
Please contact your university or library with questions.
